Welcome to my blog.  Peace Corps Talk Story reflects my background as well as the proposed focus of this site.

Peace Corps:  I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines from 1967-69.   As a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer I have long planned to write a memoir about my experience.  Nearly fifty years later, now is the time.  This blog will be about the Peace Corps experience and writing about that experience.

Talk Story:  I completed Peace Corps training in Hawaii and “Talk Story” is a term used by Hawaiians.  In talk story, a person shares a story while others corroborate or add to it as it is being told. A form of oral history which is the recording, preservation and interpretation of historical information based on personal experiences and opinions.
